Home Alone

Poster for the movie "Home Alone"


Home Alone is the perfect modern Christmas movie: full of gags, pranks and warm messages about the holiday season.

Or is it?

Take a trip back to 1990 as we explore the parenting skills of the McAllisters, policing in the Chicago suburbs, airport security pre-9/11 and why Uncle Frank is such a dick.

Do you think the polka van was creepy? Do you think Old Man Marley was Jesus? Are you still afraid of the furnace in the basement?

Let Shat The Movies refresh your memory, and relive all Home Alone’s classic moments with your three best movie buds.
